South Carolina, DI's last unbeaten team, leads the Power 10 college basketball rankings

South Carolina, DI college basketball's last unbeaten team, leads the Power 10 rankings

There is only one undefeated team left in all of college basketball — the South Carolina Gamecocks. The fighting Dawn Staleys cruised past No. 3 LSU in front of a packed house on Sunday afternoon, 88-64. The Gamecocks remain in the top spot in Autumn Johnson's Power 10 women's college basketball rankings this week.

(Last week's ranking is in parentheses.) 

1. South Carolina (1) — The undefeated Gamecocks' victory over LSU is their 19th straight win over a ranked opponent.

2. Indiana (3) — The Hoosiers are now riding an 11-game winning streak after taking down No. 5 Iowa this past week. Mackenzie Holmes and Grace Berger combined for 50 points in the victory. 

3. LSU (2) — The Tigers dropped their first game of the season on Sunday, but don't fall far, as that loss came against the defending national champions.

5. Utah (6) — Three ranked wins and a seven-game winning streak have the Utes in the top five.

6. Iowa (7) — Despite losing to Indiana this past week, the Hawkeyes bump up one spot thanks to UConn's loss to Marquette. 

7. UConn (4) — Speaking of the Huskies, their skid continues, as they have dropped from No. 2 to No. 4 and now to No. 7 in this week's Power 10. UConn lost to Marquette for the first time in program history on Wednesday.
